disappointing finish to the copenhagen conference, what action will my right honorable friend be taking in order to keep up the momentum on this absolutely vital task of tackling climate change? >> for the first time, the world was able to agree that we should not have a climate change policy that did not address the problems of rising temperatures, and the 2% limit was agreed by all countries. we also have agreement that countries will notify what they will do by 2020, and they have got to do so by january 31. we are obviously pressing for countries to be in a position where they can reduce the amount of gigatonnes in carbon and greenhouse gas emissions from about the mid-50's in 2020 to the mid-40's. there has been greater transparency achieved, with every country agreeing to report what it is doing, but we have not yet got the international treaty that we need, and we have not yet got the announcement from all countries that they support the 50% reduction by 2050. that is work that is still to be done. i agree with my honorable friend that we must now talk to all those countries that were rel

of the 2-20 was the shape of the emerging world. i looked back to the scene at copenhagen where the president burst into the room, but who is in the room? brazil, india, china, what is the arrangement of these new power arrangements? secondly, looking forward to the end of his first term, what is it reasonable to ask of this president in shaping what is reasonable to ask of this president in shaping -- >> what is reasonable to ask of this president in shaping this presidency. >> i am not so sure that it is a post american world. -- post-american world. we aren't indispensable nation, -- we are an indispensable nation. in asia, i thought that the coverage of obama's relations with asia was poor. when he came back from asia, the prime minister of india came to the white house for a state visit and obama is effectively in certain the united states into haitian politics and recognizing the degree to which of the rising powers of asia turned to the united states for some kind of leverage and balance. . . obama seems to be moving toward this new alignment. personally, i think this rei
ahead. caller: are you aware of the president's -- the brazilian president's speech in copenhagen where he said, the problem is the white people in the world. the second question is there is a country -- a company in brazil that is an offshore drilling company that in june, the obama administration gave a $15 billion loan to and i think is quite ironic that in february, george soros bought majority shares in that company. effectively, this administration has paid back george soros for getting elected with taxpayer funds. guest: i do not know anything about the second issue, but i can comment on the first. the brazilian president is a colorful, charismatic leader. then he has been for some to, to a half years. very annoyed that they have had to do things that the united states and europe-not have to do. and he has -- have not had to do. and he has been very open about saying that they have not had to do things that they've had to do in developing countries. host: salt lake city, democratic cruller. caller: we have -- and democratic collar. host: we have more natural gas than any of the c
because you have cap and trade and the fascinating conference in copen copenhagen and the olympics and healthcare legislation. could they say i'm sure the other guys have it and we are focusing on this? >> they made it clear maybe they were going to focus on the war on terror but weren't going to call it the war on terror. it changed to something most of us couldn't remember for a long time and now i have it in my head. overseas contingency operation. i find it my highly ironic now in 2010 we are back to talking about the war on terror in a big way and whether or not we are actually safe in flying. let's go back to the puzzle piece where you have four big pieces of the puzzle about the underwear bomber guy. four big pieces. there is an interesting editorial in one of the new york papers saying you would only need to have a children's puzzle. not a 5,000 piece puzzle. four big pieces. even one of those might be the smoking gun. >> he used his own name and if he used his own name and he has a problem, he got rejected trying to get into britain because of his contacts at the universit
there was any disagreement amongst the countries of copenhagen that allowed the pitcher rise above 2 degrees by 2015. it would be something the would be very serious indeed and therefore, the major countries in the world and not all countries except that at the conclusion and are working within that. the key issue now is for the countries to make the cut ends as they promised to do to the national plan for climate change target's and make them public and internationally registered so that we can bring people together probably in the next few months to see what progress we can make on getting a final climate change agreement. i will take two more. yes. >> brann willson from the sun. returning to the aplington keys to talk to the importance of learning lessons from this case. we now have a specific proposal on the table to allow full publication's reviews protecting the anonymity of the children and witnesses. are you prepared to change your mind and back of that proposal? >> i think the you have got to get to the background of what's happened here before you drawback to that conclusion. all o
